Poured into a tulip glass, burgundy red colour, dark pink frothy head.
Delicious cherry aroma
Taste falls short. It has a very cherry flavours. Not much else. Almost a cough syrup taste.
Mouth feel is good. Thick and leaves a bit of bitterness at the back of the tongue.

Received a 25.4 fl oz (750 ml) bottle via the gift exchange at my Homebrewers Club Holiday party.

P - The pour is a beautiful ruby red. There was no head.

A - The aroma was over-the-top Cherry. It was so strong that it was initially difficult to pickup the sourness.

T - Two words: Cloyingly sweet. I suspect artificial cherry flavoring was used because cherry flavor dissipates over time and the sourness becomes the major flavor.

F - Medium to hi-medium body. Could use more carbonation. Syrupy coating on inside of mouth.

O - I would not purchase a bottle

This is one of my favorite beers. Very strong sour flavor will give you a taste bud orgasm. A bit on the pricey side, but it's worth it for a occasional celebration.
